School Levy Poll: Here are the Results
Our unofficial survey shows a pretty close vote on Issue 14
About 52 percent Strongsville Patch readers said they plan to vote yes on Issue 14, which would renew a levy set to expire at the end of this year.
Roughly 42 percent are voting no, and 4 percent were still undecided.
Issue 14 would not raise taxes and would replace an existing 6-mill levy that expires this year. The issue generates $7.6 million a year -- about 11 percent of the school district's budget.
If it is not renewed, school officials say they will have to cut more than $7 million out of the budget for the 2012-2013 school year, which would likely mean major cuts in busing, extracurriculars, gifted programs and other areas.
If it does not pass Tuesday, voters would have one more chance -- in August -- to approve the measure to avert the major cuts next school year.
